The MD-PhD students can apply for a specific Federal Commission (Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences - SAMS) fellowship. This is a prestigious competitive fellowship, awarded directly to the candidate, and which provides a salary up to 3 years. Only students with a Swiss citizenship or established in Switzerland for at least 2 years are eligible.
The candidates selected by the local Commission who would not have obtained a fellowship, are authorized to continue the programme but will have to find other subsidies for their doctorate.
The granting of contributions does not cover the preparatory training.
Interested candidates can contact
the local MD-PhD Commission.
